The Educate For Life Show

Genesis of Germs – Dr. Alan Gillen

May 15, 2020 | Podcast | 0 comments

Coronavirus is still front and center on the world stage. Times like these raise difficult and interesting questions. Where did this disease and many others come from. How could God allow such a deadly disease? How does the existence of disease fit with a biblical worldview?

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as his guest Dr. Alan Gillen. Dr. Alan Gillen will shed light on these and other intriguing questions. He shows that constantly mutating diseases are proof for devolution rather than evolution. Dr. Gillen shows that germs are the result of the literal Fall and Curse of creation as a result of man’s sin.

Dr. Gillen spent seven years in graduate study in zoology and medical microbiology at The Ohio State University, The University of Houston, and Baylor College of Medicine. His focus is on integrating creation themes with biology. He has written three books and two lab manuals on various biology topics. His books include The Human Body: An Intelligent Design, Body by Design: Fearfully & Wonderfully Made, and The Genesis of Germs.
